    I love the Ponte dresses--but lately they've been very retro. This one is a more classic cut and really nice. In navy, the bling is understated but classy. This will look great with bright tights and flats or just boots.

    PS I love the side zips--that's what give it a great fit. I'm 65 inches, 62 kg and fit the size 8.

      I am fairly large busted and could of used a little more room in the bodice, but other than that I love the dress. It is a great fit and style!

        I really wanted this dress to work for me. I bought it in 2 different sizes hoping one of them would work. I am 5'10 and the waist hit me in an odd spot. My first reaction when I tried it on was that I looked like an chubby kid that had outgrown my dress because of where the waist hit. When I tried on the larger size it was loose and looked even worse. I normally wear size 14L. I ordered this dress in 16L and 18L because I did not want it to be tight. I don't think ordering my correct size would have fixed the fit problems I had with this style. I'm a pear shape and the bottom made me look even wider in the hips. The dress is well made and beautiful when it is not on my body. I bead work was beautiful and because of it I tried to talk myself into liking the dress on, but ended up returning both dresses.

          Needed a dress to pack for trip to England in June & this seems perfect. I've already worn it to museum reception & was complimented numerous times. The length is good (not too short); color very nice and the beading adds just the right touch

            This is my revised version:

            I am discovering that there is a serious problem with the zipper on this beautiful dress. It won't budge up once past the midpoint, even though the dress is a bit too large for me. In order to wear this, I will need to have the zipper replaced...and while am at that, have it taken up a few inches. (soooo long)

            But I do love the color, fabric and black beading. Very pretty and dressy, without being overly so.

                I don't understand a few of the really negative reviews on this dress. Other than the fact that I ordered it a 6L rather than a 6R, I think it's a perfect little dress. The fabric is heavy and will work year 'round. The black beading is exquisite and artistic - really different on the bright pink. There is most definitely a lovely shape throughout the fitted bodice and it drapes beautifully from the waist, which isn't too high at all. With a thin black belt,it would be a whole different look.

                I would like to switch it for a 6R, or have my hem taken up, but other than that....it's a great addition to a sophisticated wardrobe. If you've got some nice curves, this is a dress to accentuate them and to exhibit your good taste and style.

                :)

                Don't be fooled by the picture - it is not fitted, it basically has no shape and is probably one of the ugliest things I've ever tried on. It did fit - sizing up or down wouldn't have helped. But for my straight figure with a larger bust, it looked like a sack. Maybe if you have a lot of curves it will do something for you. Otherwise, I'd stay away. I'm very dissapointed, because it could have become a go-to dress if it actually looked good on.

                      This dress is really cute. The fabric is nice and heavy and the beading feels secure. It will be perfect for holiday parties! Wish they had more colors.
